    The jazzest song of Jimi

    What song in your opinion is can be noted as the jazzest in Jimi's work - due any unusual circa-jazz phrases, garmony etc?
    And if I see you no more in this world,
    Then I'll meet you in the next one -
    And don't be late

    Manic Depression (6/8 pattern) & Up from the Skies (drum and guitar phrasing)

    Nine to the Universe LP, is as close to "jazz" as I reckon.. But, also in general, Jimi was always on the cusp of a Funk or Jazz fusion sound in alot of his officially recorded material...As mentioned, Up from the skies, Still Raining, etc.

    Yeah I second the songs they already told you, if you think that's not much I suggest checking out some of his live material like Red House (Fillmore East 1968, Santa Clara 1969) and the glorious gig at the Newport Pop Festival.
